The Wikipedia article about the movement is pretty comprehensive, as well:

@constructivejournalism oh, nice!

I have a membership at the Toronto Tool Library which has a branch in my neighbourhood. I don't use it very often, but it comes in handy because I couldn't afford to buy all those tools myself and as an apartment-dweller have nowhere to put them anyway.

@constructivejournalism I think tool libraries are so important. They help push back against the capitalist idea that everybody should have (nay, deserves!) one of everything.
